 Pelion Little Train

Pelion train to Milies

The narrow gauge Little Train of Pelion [gauge of 60 cm] started operating between Volos and Lehonia in 1895 and between Lehonia and Milies in 1903, covering a total distance of approximately 29 klm. It was ingeniously designed and constructed by the Italian engineer Evaristo de Chirico, father of the world renowned surrealist painter Giorgio de Chirico, who, born and schooled in the area, drew his thematology for the metaphysical period of his work especially from his childhood memories of the mountain of the Centaurs and Argonauts. The train was instrumental in the economic and cultural development of

Pelion by making distances shorter and thereby facilitating

the transportation of both goods and people, and, more importantly, by rendering the dissemination of ideas easier and more effective, given the fact that the mountain,especially in the north, is high and steep and therefore not easily accessible. Having been superseded by the motor vehicle, however, the Little Train was decommissioned in 1971 because it was deemed to be uneconomical. Despite this, his friends never forgot their "Moudzouris" [an endearing term meaning "the smoky train"], and, after applying pressure to the right quarters, they managed to have it reinstated into service after about 25 years. Today it operates at weekends in high season only for tourist purposes, and a ride on it is the favourite excursion of Pelion visitors of all ages and nationalities.
